I can't do a whole car, but I acid wash rusty steel parts all of the time. I use a product called acid magic which is a muriatic acid substitute that is safe to the skin. But immediately after it's removed from the acid it needs to be neutralized and treated to a hot iron phosphate treatment to prevent the rust from returning. It's a great way to remove rust!

I had my '67 Shelby stripped by Redi-strip in Illinois. They use an alkaline instead of a acid process, plus they de-rust the car with a electrolysis process. All these Mustangs rust and I wanted it to be as rust free as possible. The car came out great, but there was some residual leaking of fluid that required the primer to be touched up. I would not use an acid dip, though. I have heard horror stories about acid dips.

Can you soda blast the car then try and POR15 the inner panels? That will stop any rust issues you have.

Say NO to acid wash. Redi-strip maybe better, but I would talk to the painter cause stuff must be compatible as you only want to paint it once.
Why do we make is so difficult to "simplify" things???

Use what Mother Nature gave you before Father Time takes it away.
